Have you ever had a bite of something that was so different, so special, or so addictive that you just can't stop? Let me introduce you to Brown Sugar Derby Pecans - sure to be your new favorite friend!
If you love pecans, roasted and glazed with the most perfect browned butter and brown sugar, you are going to LOVE these! Just a touch of vanilla and a hint of fresh rosemary make these perfect for Kentucky Derby parties, or just for something special to munch on with a tall summer drink...
I've been making these as a special treat for special event for years now, and I'm not sure exactly what it is that makes these so addictive.
I always start with the biggest, freshest, most perfect pecan halves that I can get my hands on. I roast them fresh in the oven for 15 minutes. It could be the browned butter, or the dark brown sugar, or that touch of pure vanilla...but I think it also has something to do with the lightest hint of fresh rosemary. Everyone knows there is something extra special about these glazed nuts, but no one can quite put their finger on what it is....
In any event, it can be our little secret! One taste and you'll be making these up for all of your springtime parties. Enjoy!
